Horrible

I live in Bandera and the food is not very flavorful. It's too overprice at dinner time. The portion size aren't the best. And then when this one host, (I think his name is Brandon) is there, he always seems to be very rude. He gives me the worst attitude and doesn't have good customer service... read more

I was not expecting authentic Chinese cuisine, but that is what we go. Great food at good prices. We'll be back.

service was good. Great choice of food on the menu. My husband and I both had the hot and sour soup and it was delicious. We both chose different main courses which were full of flavour. The restaurant is very basic but don't let that put you off. The food is far from basic.

The was my first time here. Service was excellent! Food was hot and tasty! I had the egg drop soup, beef with vegetables,fried rice and crab rangoon. It was enough for lunch and I even brought some home. I can't wait to go back! Please keep in mind of their hours. Lunch is 11-3 and I believe Dinner is 5-9.... More

This place is as average as you can get. It is clean and the food tastes just like they opened one of those cans of chow mein you get at the box store. The food is OK but not much better.

We found this place after paying too much for food at a food truck while we were working at a festival. Lunch special was cheap, came with soup and egg roll and was very good. Try it.

What a great place! This was our first visit as we recently moved to the area. Karen was our waitress and the service was OUTSTANDING! The food (orange chicken, hot and sour soup, crab rangoon, and egg roll) was fresh, delicious, hot, and fast. Price was very good. Adding soup, egg roll, and crab rangoon to my entree for $2.50...
